the weird things that go through my head   1 comment

I know this sounds strange, I know it, but it is there none the less.
A few weeks ago I was here at work cleaning and this thought popped into my head.
I needed to make a home for myself so I could exist under water.
this vessel would be able to stay at the bottom of the ocean, but would move with the tides.

of course I would have all the air and food I needed and a comfortable place to sleep and exist.
This vessel wouldn’t be huge, but it would be big enough that I could live and not have any fear of any predator (Sharks) hurting me

I don’t know why this popped into my head.
it is strange I know.

this bottle in this picture reminded me of my idea.
this bottle would float and be torn across the waves because it is so light and airless.

my vessel would be on the ocean bottom, creeping along and letting the ocean current take me where ever it wanted.

the idea is awesome to me.
imagine the things I could learn about life under the water?

so someone invent this contraption for me and I will give the ocean a year of my life to learn all I can about it.

I want to scream NO!!!!!   Leave a comment

look out your window and what will you see, twenty-four hours from now?
more snow!
I want to scream NO!!!!
We have had enough!!!
but unfortunately it is still only February here in Iowa and Mother Nature thinks we need more of the powdered white stuff before she lets us move into spring.

there is really nothing we can do about it and all the complaining in the world isn’t going to stop the snow from coming.

Guess I best get my winter boots and coat back out………..

In Memory of……..   Leave a comment

on this date five years ago a  lonely young man took his life.
he was suffering with depression and had no idea where to turn.
He was a nice kid.
I didn’t know him really well, but he was friends with my youngest daughter.

I remember the first time I saw him, he was barely two.
I remember then thinking, with those incredibly eyes he had, that he would be breaking a lot of girls hearts when he was a man.
Unfortunately he never made it to manhood.
his demons over came him.

It still saddens me to think of this  young man and the way his life ended.

for anyone who reads me regularly, you know I have some pretty strange dreams.
they are vivid and practically like a movie set that I get to play my part in.
Last night was no exception.

I dreamt I was traveling on a long highway (no idea where)  it was long and tedious and took forever to get to the destination (again, no idea where that was either)

There was a huge family reunion.
And when I was a child our family reunions were close to 100 people.

So in my dream last night all of these people were there.
but the best thing was, my mother was there.
And I just sobbed when I saw her.
She pulled me into her arms, and I felt like a huge piece of myself was finally found as she hugged me.

Now I don’t think of my mother, nearly as often as I use to.
This April 4th she will have passed 19 years ago.

but she does occasionally show up in my dreams

Which is quite awesome.

In this dream last night she was as I remember her when I was a child.
Chubby and healthy as can be.

She died of cancer back in 1992 and she was skin and bones when she passed away.

still in this dream she was so very healthy and it was so great to be with her again.

I actually felt like coming home, when I was in her arms.
I miss you mom!
Thanks for visiting me in my dreams!
